The U.S. Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced today that the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, will lead a consortium to identify new and emerging areas of advanced manufacturing that would benefit from shared public-private investment in research and development, education and training.

Alchemical Marketing's curator insight, October 11, 2015 1:54 PM

Self-awareness is once again key. There are many things to be aware of as a leader, but one's self is the best place to start.

donhornsby's curator insight, October 16, 2015 9:33 AM

(From the article): It’s not impossible for leaders who have been pulled to the dark side to return to the light. Just as people change for the worse, we can change for the better – as long as the desire is there.

JASON CAVNESS's curator insight, October 17, 2015 1:45 PM

This is one reason why it is important to surround yourself with people who are not afraid to tell you when you are doing something that is not right.
